Crane Coloring Contest
CCCC sponsors the Crane Coloring Contest every year as a program to help raise “crane awareness” in the younger generation. Ages 3 to 18 are eligible to participate. The contest runs from March – August every year. Kids from across the world are encouraged to color, paint, and decorate the coloring page and return it to us to participate in the Crane Coloring Contest. The coloring pages are created by local Colorado artists.
The contest rules and coloring page will be available starting in March every year. Awards are given out at a special ceremony at the Bud Werner Memorial Library during the annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival in early September.
